Un Limited Means by Alejandro Echeverri presented by Space.City
Space.City would like to announce its upcoming Fall Lecture Series, "Un Limited Means."  The series is a play on words which superimposes our own preconceptions that architects working under unique or difficult circumstances, have limited means to create architecture, with the possibility that these very same conditions might actually provide for liberating design conditions.  The series will provide a uniqe view into firms working in economically depressed conditions, focusing on the roles that local construction techniques, politics, finances, the environment, and social issues play in the creation of their architectural works.

In addition to his strong architectural practice and teaching, as Director of Urban Projects, Echeverri has played crucial role in the rejuvenation of Medellin, Colombia. With the support and partnership of the city's mayor, Sergio Fajardo, Echeverri established public works programs and initiated building a series of visually striking libraries, schools, parks, and community centers in Medellin's most impoverished areas, including the an elevated gondola tramway that connects some of Medellin's poorest and most isolated neighborhoods to the rest of the city. Because of these efforts and the belief in the power of design, Medellin's crime rate has significantly declined and the city is now considered a blueprint for the future of other cities in the developing world.
